I got a Wii U a few weeks ago because of the ridiculous trade offer Target had going on (got the Wii U with 2 games, plus 2 remotes, all for under $150). I got it to co-op with my sister and brother-in-law when I'm at their house. We've almost beaten New Super Mario Bros. U, just have to go back for the big coins and do the extra level, then we can do the shorter Super Luigi U. I'm thinking about picking up MK8 because I'd get the $12 off at Best Buy, plus they have a deal going on that you get $20 off Sonic Lost World if you buy it with MK8, and after the 20% discount on THAT, I'd get the game for under $20.

 

Oh, and don't forget that if you get MK8, you get a free digital download of either New Super Mario Bros. U, Wii Party U, Pikmin 3, or The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD when you register the game online.

The new Madden kicks ass. Got it for Xbox One. Probably the best Madden I've played for a while.

In other news, Madden 15 has wiped Ray Rice. http://kotaku.com/report-ea-will-remove-ray-rice-from-madden-15-1632420692/+tcraggs22

I have not. The demo comes out today, right? I probably won't. I'm not a big demo guy, I like being surprised when I first get it later this month lol. FIFA 14 was great.

Yeah, 14 was pretty close to perfect aside from a few annoyances in career mode (or whatever they call it) and some odd gameplay goofs.

I had been excitedly waiting for Destiny up until my PS4 was stolen just over a month ago. It looks like a great game too.

I am still deciding on which gaming system to get. I've been a X-box guy since Halo sucked me in. I also have a Wii, and really want to play the new Nintendo games. Though I did miss out on some great games on the Playstation console.

I think they finally got most of the issues with the xbone fixed so it's not a bad choice, but the friends I have are all on ps3/4 so when I replace mine it'll be ps4 again.

Yea, I am big on FPS and Final Fantasy-ish games. Not really a big sports games. So I think going PS4 this time around. Especially if the downloadable content is there on some older PS games.

I've been going to and from games in the last 10 years, but it's revved up lately. I don't watch TV anymore, but watch a lot of Twitch.tv

 

This summer I played through Demon's Souls, Dark Souls and Dark Souls 2. Currently got 135 hours in Dark Souls 2 on NG++.

I'm iffy on Madden, because the A.I. is completely inept for online play. If you're doing MUT Seasons (which I am off-and-on with solo MUT stuff), there are too many folks who can exploit the bad defensive A.I. If you have a mobile QB, a play-action pass where you send guys deep then run with the QB is hard to defend, mostly because the game won't let you switch to a defender to charge the QB.

 

I played the Destiny beta and passed. The social/MMO aspects of the game are a complete dud. There are too many loading screens, and they take too long. The story is mostly useless/unexplained. The gunplay is good, but it's ruined by an overall bland world, story, and set of enemies.

 

As for console selection, I have the One and the Wii U. I've never felt that passing on Sony consoles has been a mistake for me. The only franchise they have that I want to play is Kingdom Hearts (looking for a cheap, used PS3 to do that before KH3 is out on the One), though the loss of MLB 2K has me wanting The Show now. The rest just doesn't intrigue me, because the shooters on the Xbox consoles (Halo, Gears) have blown the Sony option (Killzone, Resistance) out of the water. If you like shooters, I'd recommend the Xbox. If you like the action/adventure stuff, PlayStation is better. If you like local multiplayer, Nintendo's Mario Kart 8 is hard to beat.

 

I personally believe that if you are going to get just one console, it's between the One and PS4, with the Wii U mostly an afterthought due to lack of third-party support and good online play. If you are to get TWO consoles though (which I ultimately did), then the Wii U HAS to be the second choice, because the One and PS4 are so similar with their libraries that having both while passing on the Wii U is a crime.
